Reflections Medical Clinic was born out of a passion for patient care shared by these three women.
Dr Heather Gooden, MD, CCFP
Dr Gooden started her career in Manitoba, attending the University of Manitoba and earning a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology followed by a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology before attending Medical school. She graduated in 2006 and attended residency at McGill University in Montreal. Upon graduation in 2008, Dr Gooden moved to Northern Manitoba where she practiced for three years in The Pas as a general practitioner. After starting her family, the Gooden's relocated to be closer to family and friends and to have a better life balance so they moved to Alberta where they have been since 2011. Initially practicing in Strathmore, Dr Gooden relocated her clinic practice in Langdon in 2014 and continues to work heavily in the field of geriatrics outside of clinic. Dr Gooden is pleased to now be opening her own clinic with her friends and partners in Chestermere where she continues to enjoy working with all ages and stages of life.
Dr Nelini Reddy, MD
Dr Nelini Reddy is a South African trained physician who started family practice in rural Saskatchewan in 2012.
Dr Reddy moved to Alberta in 2015 for a more favourable work-life balance with her husband and two young children, and started working at the Langdon Medical Clinic.
She was quickly enamoured with the people in Langdon and the surrounding communities of Chestermere, Strathmore and Calgary; and together with Dr Gooden and Lynette Wohlgemuth, set out to open a space that would be a true reflection of her family practice in Chestemere in 2017.
Lynette Wohlgemuth, RN, NP, Reflections Nurse Specialty Services
Lynette Wohlgemuth is a Nurse Practitioner specializing in Paediatric Primary Care, as well as working collaboratively with her Family Physician partners in providing Women's health services.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing with Distinction from the University of Calgary in 1997 and soon began her career as a Paediatric Intensive Care Nurse at Alberta Children's Hospital. Over 18 years, she provided care for many children and their families.
Though often difficult, Lynette always considered her role as privileged to be able to support families through some of their most trying times. Her roles included participation on multiple paediatric care teams including Paediatric Transport, Rapid Response and Resuscitation, heart/long bypass, Simulation Instructor, as well as preceptor to many RNs along the way.
Lynette graduated from the University of Toronto in 2014 with her Master of Nursing Degree and Paediatric Nurse Practitioner Speciality. She works closely with families, speciality practitioners, school multidisciplinary teams, AHS Sexual and Reproductive Health Clinics, and as a consultant for the Alberta Sexually Transmitted/Blood Bone Infections (STBBI) Strategy in creating effective screening and treatment pathways at the primary care level.
Lynette's practice was highlighted in the NPAA Nurse Practitioner Showcase in Fall, 2016 and the article was subsequently posted in the International Council of Nurses NP/APN Network Bulletin in January, 2017.
Lynette was born and raised in Grande Prairie, but has called Calgary and area home for more that half her life. She is in her element sitting beside a campfire after a long day's hike in the Rockies!
